  • Description 

    Stick clip, campus up bad rock and do a strange mantle move to gain the first bolt. Perform some tricky moves to gain an improbable unicorn horn.

    After a couple of easy bolts comes the best rock and the most fun. Do a leftward traverse with an awesome reverse rose move, and gain a huge incut jug. The following pounce is the crux, but keep it together for a nice edging/traversing sequence to gain the upper face. Enjoy the cool swirly holds at the last bolt, and pull the last long moves to the anchor.

    This a really nice route - consistently great movement, mostly good rock, and likely a bit soft for tall folk. It's slightly off the beaten path, but well worth it.

    Location 

    Far right of Area 51. Ascends the rightmost fringe of the amphitheater beyond the Waco not Hueco area. Left of the route V.D. (12c) and Stays in Vegas (12a).

    Protection 

    Bolts to two-bolt anchor.
